Harvest production at Hirsch and Cobb Wineries

Complex wine. Candied cherry, dark plum, walnut shell, leather, butter, milk chocolate, licorice, cooked herbs, flintstones vitamins. Umami describes it best. Great for $36 at Costco. Will buy more ASAP.

Had this in the cellar! Situated in the province of Siena where Castiglion del Bosco encompasses approximately 4,450 acres of land, 125 of which are vineyards. Garnet with complex aromas of berries and spice. On the palate this classic Sangiovese shows cherry and ripe strawberry flavors with citrus notes, licorice and oak. Great balance and structure, soft chewy tannins on a lingering finish ending softly with some spice. Very Nice, drinking well.

From taste: vibrant orange, spruce needle, thyme, sour cherry liqueur and stony nose; can sense the structure beneath. Real fresh with a powerful acid spine, firm tannin, and sense of staying power. Good midpalate density, tart and savoury, thyme and orange peel finish, a little heat. Made in a midweight+ classic style. Keep for 8-10.

Needs food. Somewhat biting tannins and a burnt flavor. Missing something. Maybe needs air

Excellent medium bodied soft on the palate balanced perfect tannins and acidity w/defined red berry flavor...but not great for the high price.

Castiglion del Bosco. Expected more but still a great representation of the Sangiovese grape.
